Tabby 31.12 (1)

4.    ……”

“But Tabby, it is an empty list, you have not written anything.”

“I am still thinking about it Mrs. Human. Resolutions are not something you just paw down, it has to be tackled with a serious approach. What about “I will always be there for the others, I, me and myself and will support them wherever possible”.

“That doesn’t sound like a resolution Tabby, more like a manifest.”

“You think I should include tuna fish as well.”

“No Tabby, including yourself three times is enough. Perhaps you could make No. 2 resolution to be more considerate towards your human slave.”

“Yes, Mrs. Human, you are right. I do tend to neglect various aspects of our relationship. No. 2 resolution: Always leave a clean food bowl, to enable Mrs. Human to fill it easier.”

“I think we are having communication problems Tabby.”

“OK, Resolution No. 3, help Mrs. Human with her understanding of the Meow language and Resolution No. 4 would be Order her a Meow-human dictionary to facilitate the understanding between the two species.”

“That is not actually what I meant Tabby. I was thinking more about you being more helpful and not leaving everything to me to do.”

“But I just resolved to leave behind a nice clean food bowl.”

“That is nothing new Tabby, you always lick the last morsel from the bowl and when you are finished it is always clean. I understand Meow quite well Tabby and do not need a dictionary, I think you need a complete list of words that should be included in the Meow dictionary, like “help, consideration, thoughtfulness, generosity and thankyou”.

“That is a difficult one Mrs.Human, I do not know how to spell those words in human and no feline would understand them because they do not exist in meow. But back to the problem, would you prefer your Meow dictionary in original hieroglyphics or phonetic signs.”

“Perhaps you could get me one of each version, then I could decide.”

“No problem Mrs. Human. I would recommend the hieroglyphical version. If you do not understand it you can look at the pictures.”

“Are you insinuating that I cannot read.”

“Of course not Mrs. Human, even humans can read, it is just a matter of the correct interpretation.  I have a New Years gift for you which will help. Meow lessons online.”

“Thanks Tabby, you are so generous.”

“Don’t mention it, always ready to help. Resolution No. 5: be kind to your human, they are a simple folk and need pointing in the right direction.”

Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Resolutions

Have you ever made a New Year’s Resolution that you kept?


“Mrs. Human I have resolved not to resolve.”

“A good idea Tabby, then we will have no problems together.”

“On the other hand I have resolved a few resolutions for you to maintian.”

“But they are my resolutions, not yours.”

“Just a little help on the way Mrs. Human. You have resolved to serve tuna fish at least twice a week, on Sunday and Wednesday.”

“Why on those two particular days?”

“I could do Monday and Thursday if you would prefer. The name is not important of the day, but the regularity of the tuna fish servings is important. If I do not get my tuna fish regularly I will have a vitamin deficiency, I will suffer from withdrawal symptoms. I have also resolved that you will give me a tummy tickle at least twice a day, preferably in the afternoon and evening.”

“Are you sure not three times a day, I might be able to fix a tummy tickle in during the morning.”

“No, Mrs. Human. Mornings are not a good time for tummy tickles. I am busy planning my day. Evenings and afternoons are more suitable, the tummy tickles help to prepare me for my sleep. In connection with sleep, perhaps you could organise a comfortable cushion opposite the entrance to my apartment.”

“But you already have comfortable cushions on top of the cupboard and you often sleep on my bed.”

“That is not the problem Mrs. Human. I need a place where I can observe who enters and leaves my apartment. I have to keep things under control. You could perhaps also resolve that you open the window when I wish to enter my apartment.”

“But you have the cat flap.”

“Yes, but when I enter I have to align the magnet on my collar with the magnet on the cat flap and that needs concentration.”

“Anything else Tabby.”

“That will of for now. If something comes to my mind I will tell you, no better, I will make a list on my pawpad.”

“Yes Tabby, I am so glad you have organised my New Year’s Resolutions.”
